About the children series "Visual Communication"
When the children in my work starts playing it is like a whole new world to them. They are completely zoned out and ignore all that come their way. Children are all the time getting into everything within their surroundings. I follow the children around to see what they get into instead of setting up a scene because it feels more natural. The children are wild and free with no hesitation. No pressure is set on them, which I like most. They have a certain way they move with their bodies and their movements are usually more peculiar than the average adult. When children play with objects they communicate and interact with it differently. Often what drives our attention about kids are how their bodies relate and tell a story with what they are connecting against because they are still growing and learning what their body functions do. The images look abstract and out of the ordinary, but you will still know it is a child based on the scale of their body parts. It’s not every day a grown person can see the view of a child’s eye, so I focus on shooting from their level and from above them looking down. It’s also about what is intriguing to adults when it comes to children and showing the contrast and communication between the two. No adults are participating. It’s a children’s world.
